    According to a quick scan of their Facebook, they've sold out a few dates on this tour including a 700 cap room in Chicago that I've been to a bunch. I've heard of them, but never given them a listen until checking out this single:



    Not my thing at this point in my life, but it ain't bad. Definitely get the appeal.

    Yeah, they're fine. I don't love them or hate them, it's just that they sold out a venue that Architects and other bigger (in my eyes) bands didn't sell out. I just underestimated their popularity, I guess.

    Yeah. To be fair, I had no idea they were apparently as popular as they actually are. That's probably what happens when you rely on here, Axe To Grind, and deep dives of Blogspots and Bandcamp tags as your primary sources of new music recs.

    Yeah, I don’t think the metal thread on Chorus is the best source for opinions and new music updates. No offense of course and I love when people post things in here. I’m open to just about anything.

    I'm content with the opinions, recs, and commentary I get from here most of the time to be honest. I like this little niche of the internet for metal. :shrug:

    As an aside, the new maxi-single from Undergang is NASTY:

    Oh I love the community on here but I don’t use it as my “holy bible” and try to use multiple outlets.

    If there was even a single NSBM chud on here I think I would leave so I'm glad we don't have that issue.

    Because even beyond the reprehensible beliefs, most NSBM is comically bad. I listened to an Absurd song once to hear what the hubbub was all about and within the first minute of the song I started laughing. I'm actually not joking.

    I'm skipping out on the Skeletal Remains/Voivod/Conjurer/Revocation show next week to save $$ for other shows

    Conjurer should not be missed if you can help it. It sucks because here, that show is the same night as Despised Icon/Devourment/Kublai Klan AND Immolaton/Blood Incantation AND Gouge Away/Jerome's Dream AND Kill Tony podcast.

    I'm torn, but I'll likely go see Conjurer at least and then maybe dip out early to catch Devourment and Despised Icon across the street.

    Going to see Soulfly and Unearth tonight because tickets were essentially free thanks to a fan appreciation promotion. I guess I might as well crank one more concert out before my wife and I welcome a bundle of joy into the world.

    Ain't nothing like seeing a five band package in a less than quarter full 1500 cap venue on a Monday.

    This package shouldn't have been booked at this big of a venue in the first place but I can't argue with shows that actually work for my schedule at this point.
